I consider myself something of a connoisseur of ruining manicures. Super cheap salon manicures, at-home manicures, high-end spa manicures: no matter how I acquired my freshly painted nails, I’ve smeared, chipped, or smudged them all, often in record time (“Already?!” –every manicurist who’s had to ever had to repaint my thumbnail). Would you like to explore some new techniques to mess up your fresh, flawless mani? Here are 30 easy ways to ruin your manicure, all personally tested and approved by me… Keep reading »

I usually go for crazy nail polish colors like neon pink and rainbow glitter, but the other day I randomly bought a bottle of rose gold polish, and the surprisingly subtle shade is shaping up to be my new favorite. The pink undertones make it flattering on any skin tone and help it stand out from other gold polishes that are everywhere this season. Perfect. [$7.50, Amazon]

Get Nailed With Miss Pop: Chanukah Nails!

It’s Chanukah Party time! And this year, I’m getting a copy of the new Laika Magazineout 12/12/12. I’m so excited to have this design in its first issue, especially because all of the products in Laika’s pages are Cruelty Free. Bonus!

The polishes I used here are from one of my favorite local NYC shops: Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. Their 100 percent vegan products are truly amazing. I’m a big fan of their lip tars and lacquers. To make this look festive, I used polish colors: Spanglemaker, Rx and Inky. But really any color combo with high contrast will work well.

After the jump, get the DIY to steal this look straight out of the pages of Laika Magazine!

Here in New York City, we take our brunch seriously. My girls and I like to get together and do it up! My best dish is grits … my only dish is grits. But that as a nail design would probably look more like the back of my thighs than delicious creamy polenta. So, I went for the classics— a donut, bacon, eggs, and a fork to shovel it all in your pie hole. Keep reading »

It’s the first day of summer. Time to hit the beach! I can’t make it out ‘til this weekend, but my nails are so already there. Here are my “Seaside In Aguadilla” nails, the design I reference in the new July Issue of Marie Claire (check me out on page 162!). Except, this sand came straight from the shore The Ramones made famous: Rock, Rock, Rockaway Beach!

And now I’ll let you in on a secret: I got my sand to stick with a nail art must have—Color Club’s Nail Art Sealer. That stuff is a magical bonding topcoat for 3D effects! You should be able to find it at Sally Beauty Supply.
